Magnolia Buds Pop-Up Card
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  Today I am sharing a floral bouquet pop-up card featuring the Magnolia Bud Trio die from the April 2023 Magnolia collection.  Removed the belly band and here’s the fun surprise inside! 🤗


Started with two side folding A2 size card bases made from black cardstock.  Trimmed one down about 1/8” smaller, then using a ruler and a white gel pen, marked off the bouquet details as follows.


The dot is the point of the bottom of the bouquet wrap while the lines are the top of the wrap and shelves for attaching the buds and leaves.  Scored from the end point of the longest line to the dot, then folded as follows.


Opened it up and mountain fold all sections to form the bouquet.


Die cut the Magnolia Bud Trio from white cardstock and colored the buds with a finger brush and Wilted Violet distress ink.  Die cut the leaves with the Magnolia Leaf Branch die and colored the leaves with YG61/63/67 Copic Sketch markers.  Glued the buds and leaves to form the bouquet, checking each time to ensure placement does not impede folding.  Magnolia Plaid paper was used for the wrap  


Created the belly band from black cardstock and the same plaid paper to keep the card cohesive.  The For You Posh Script sentiment was in my stash.  It was die cut from gold Vintage Pastel Mirror paper and mounted on its black shadow.  


Didn’t want the few unused buds and left over branch to go to waste, so added them to the belly band afterwards.  Finished off with some clear shimmer on the buds for some sparkle.

And that does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Magnolia Wreath
by Trina Pham


Hello there.  I have a simple magnolia wreath card to share today made with the Curved Magnolia Branch die.  This started out as a Mother’s Day card for my mom, but remembered afterwards that I had already made one for her! 😆   So now she’ll get this next month for her birthday. 😂

The flowers and foliage were die cut from alcohol marker friendly cardstock and coloured with Copic Sketch markers.  I stuck to pink and grey to keep in line with the card for my MIL, except a lighter palette was used.

Copic markers used:
magnolias - R81, R83, R85
leaves - C2, C3, C5, C6


The A2 size white woodgrain panel was scored horizontally at every inch.  The Love You Posh Script sentiment was die cut from silver Vintage Pastel Mirror paper and twice from thick white paper.  Adhered the mirror die cut on the front of its vellum shadow and the two white ones behind the vellum to give it a lift for a floating effect.  Assembled the card onto a white card base, then added clear shimmer to the magnolias for some sparkle to finish,


Before I go, I want to wish my mom, and all the moms who are celebrating tomorrow, a happy Mother’s Day.  Hope you all have a fabulous day.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

I inked the edges around the clouds and after putting them together added them to a piece of mirror card stock.
The sentiment is from Cl5276 Friends and Family stamp set and mirror paper for the mat is from the FP1103 Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  I also used the new 94672 A2 Rectangle Frames dies to cut all the rectangles for my card.
The background night sky was made with alcohol inks, including some gold metallic alcohol ink.  The sentiment from the stamp set was heat embossed on the front panel of the card.  Here's a closer look:

Luxe Peony For You
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  I have an all-occasion card today featuring the Luxe Peony and For You Posh Script dies from the 2023 Valentine’s collection.

The peony was die cut three times from white cardstock.  Using a finger brush, ink blended Victorian Velvet distress ink to each piece before layering / gluing them together.  For some sparkle, spritz them with a shimmer spray.  The leaves were die cut from alcohol marker friendly cardstock then colored with Copic Sketch markers YG61, YG63 and YG61.


The sentiment was die cut once from gold mirror paper and twice from thick white paper, then stacked onto its white shadow piece.  On a white A2 size panel, splattered with diluted black gouache paint for a bit of texture.  Assembled the card onto a white card base, popping up the middle peony with foam squares.  Added a few clear Fairy Drops to finish  


That’s it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week.

Trifold Valentines Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a trifold Globe shape Valentines card featuring the Pinpoint Burst heart die.  Did you know you can heat foil any dies!  The fold will stick where the metal touches the paper.  Memory Box has a lot of different dies that cut or emboss on the paper.  Look through your stash and see what you can heat foil.  Just follow the same instructions as regular folding. 


Card base:

Die cut the largest die from the Nested Globe die set 5 times from heavy weight card stock. For the windows take 1 Globe die cut and die cut the 4th largest die in the center.  Remove the center, leaving the die in place.  Take the next Globe die cut and temporary tape it to the front panel die cut.  Repeat the process for the next 2 die cut.  Leaving 1 die cut as is. for the back panel.  Next stencil the window panels with the Leafy Row stencil and Fresh Ink Pink Lemonade ink.  I used a stencil blending brush heavy for the leafs and then remove the stencil.  Lightly blend with the same ink over all the panels, including the back panel. .  To create a hinge for the panels cut 2 strips of white card stock to 3" x 1/2".  Next score down the center at 1/4". 


Window centers:

Die cut the Willow Globe from a light pink paper from the Berry Red pad and from vellum.  Glue together along the outside rim.  Do NOT glue the leaves together.  Die cut the Heart Streamer Globe die set from a red paper from Berry Red pad.  Die cut the heart dies from the Heart Streamer Globe die set from a shiny gold paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  Glue the hearts to the streamers, front and back.  


Foiled Heart:

Gold heat foil the Pinpoint Burst Heart from a dark red paper from the Berry Red pad. secure the die to the foil and paper.It is the same process as you would a normal foil plate.  I used a Gemini Jr foil machine and it has a heat and cut plate option.  If your foil machine does not just heat foil the heart first then run through as a regular die cut.



Stamp Happy Valentine's Day from the Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set .on white card stock using Fresh Ink Tomato Red. Trim down to small strips.



Take 2 window panels for the front and glue in the Willow Globe die cuts into the backside of the window.  Take 1 of the hinges and add glue to 1 side of the score line and place on the left side of  inside of the back window panel for the front..  Make sure the hinge faces down with the hinge folding towards the back.  Glue on the top of the window panel.  Repeat this process for the inner fold window panel but put the hinge on the left side of the panel.  One the back full panel adhere the foiled heart.  Adhere Happy to top of the heart and Valentine's Day to the bottom.  Adhere the inside panel first to the left side of the back of the base panel, lining up the bottoms. Let glue dry and then fold the panel open and closed a few times.  Glue the front panel hinge to the left side, back of the back panel.  Let glue dry and open and close a few times.

For You Posh Script Card Duo
by Angie Cimbalo

Hello and welcome! I have 2 cards made from one embossed panel as shown above!
I took the Memory Box "Blooming" 3D embossing folder and a Tim Holtz brayer and Versamark Ink and inked up the debossed side of the folder and ran it through my die cutting machine. I used the "Fresh Aqua Collection" paper pad and chose a dark teal card stock. Then I put clear embossing powder on it and heating it with my heat gun.

Next I used a dauber to add white ink to the raised areas. Here's a look at the finished embossed panel.

Next I took scissors and cut it into 2 sections as seen below:

I trimmed down the panels to fit on the sides of card bases and created two cards.

Here's a look at card number one:

The sentiment for both card is the brand new "For You Posh Script" cut from white and from the darkest teal paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror. Here's a close up look at card number one:

Here's a look at the second card:

And here's a close up look at second card:

I love it when you can make two cards with one panel! And I really love how these turned out. The "Blooming 3D" embossing folder is one my all time favorites and it goes perfectly with the newly released word die.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
